One in four Canadians says they have tried e-cigarettes, and one in three have tried them.
But how does one actually smoke an e-cigarette?
As well as providing a nicotine boost, e-cigs contain nicotine, which can trigger a range of health problems.
Here are the five things to know about vaping:1.
Can e-liquids be smoked?
Yes, and they can.
Some of the most popular e-cig flavours are called “vaporisers,” which are liquids made with a heating element.
When heated, the liquid turns into a vapour, which is then inhaled.
When inhaled, the vapour can leave your lungs, but it can also irritate them.
E-cigarette vapour has to be heated to a high enough temperature to produce a puff of vapour that is inhaled and then inhale it again.2.
Are there health risks?
Nicotine can cause a range or respiratory problems, including bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare respiratory disease caused by exposure to the toxin nitrosamines in cigarette smoke.
It can also cause cancer, but most cancers can be prevented if the body has protective substances in place.
Nicotine also affects blood pressure, which may lead to heart problems.3.
Are e-juice safe?
Yes – but only when used correctly.
E.L.F. recommends that users follow the instructions on the packaging and instructions on their device.
If you’re using an ejuice that contains nicotine, it’s best to stop using it.
But if you’re vaping an e, you can continue to use the product, even if you’ve not followed the instructions.4.
Are they safer than cigarettes?
Yes and no.
There are a range the risks of e-liquid compared to cigarettes.
For instance, according to research by the Royal College of Physicians and the Institute for Tobacco Control, a British health body, e juice contains between 0.4 and 1.6 times more nicotine than regular cigarettes.
But the number of deaths associated with smoking a pack of cigarettes has fallen dramatically in recent years, according, to research published in the Lancet.
This means that vaping is safe for some people.5.
Are you at risk for a health problem?
E-cigarettes contain nicotine and other harmful substances, and their popularity has increased dramatically in the last few years.
There have been concerns that vaping may increase the risk of some types of cancer, including breast, prostate and colorectal cancers.
The Food and Drug Administration has already been warning people about the dangers of vaping, saying that vaping can increase your risk of lung cancer.
But experts say that the scientific evidence on the potential health risks is mixed.
In Canada, there have been no reports of anyone dying from e-vapor inhalation.
In Quebec, however, a study published in September 2016 found that about one in five of the participants had inhaled an e liquid.
